    It may be a bad or corupt installation disk or bad hard drive. That error is usually associated with applications (at least it was for me). When the application tries to access a dynamic link library and it is corrupt or missing, you can run into that error message durring a lot of programs. However, during boot, I have not seen that. That's what leads me to believe it could be one of the previous mentioned.

    Then do as grimreaper says. Completely format the disk to 0's. If you still have the same problem, I'd find a new installation disk. When a disk is made it is composed of 2 pieces of plastic which are covered in adhesive. These pieces are pressed together with the aluminum substance (for lack of a better term). If there are any air bubbles that come into contact with this substance it will corrode it. This will cause errors on the disk. In turn, causing errors on an installation.

    I have to ask the obvious question - You formatted via the install CD and you DID reload the OS?
